OPSU makes every effort to make higher education affordable to all students. Once a student's financial need has been established, there are several ways in which the University can help.

Assistance for OPSU Students Includes

All financial aid paperwork should be completed at least six weeks prior to the beginning of each semester. All correspondence from this office will be through your student email account. It is your responsibility to check this account.


Financial Aid Suspension and Appeal


If you received notice that your Financial Aid has been suspended for Fall 2017 and you need to appeal your suspension, the first meeting will be August 18, 2017 in the Science and Ag building at 10:00 am in room 202.

The appeal committee will see students on a first come first serve basis. To appeal you will need to have submitted a letter to the Financial Aid committee stating your request for your appeal, the circumstances that surround your suspension, and grad evaluation from your advisor. These items will need to be submitted to the financial aid office prior to the meeting or your appeal will not be reviewed until the second meeting for the fall 2017 semester.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

2017 Financial Aid Exit Interview


If you do not plan to return to OPSU in the Fall of 2017 and you have had a Federal Direct and or Plus loan during your attendance at OPSU, we are asking you to take the time to complete your Exit interview by clicking the link or if you would like to come by our office and complete it there. Our office is located in Sewell Loofburrow, room 106.

If you have already completed the Exit interview process, disregard this notice and have a wonderful summer!

Federal regulations require that any student that has borrowed Title IV loans and leaves the university for any reason must complete an Exit counseling interview. The confirmation number will be automatically sent to our office.

Message From the Financial Aid Office

I want to remind students that this is not an overnight process. Once you have filled out your FAFSA application at, you will receive a confirmation from FAFSA that your application has been submitted and they will provide you with an estimate of what financial aid you might receive. Please remember that this is just an ESTMIATE. The financial aid office at OPSU will not receive your application for approximately 24-48 hours.

We will then start the process to determine the aid for which you qualify.

Expect this process to take up to 3 weeks if your paperwork is filled out correctly and no corrections are required.

We will correspond with you through the email you entered on your FAFSA or your student email. So please check your email periodically for communication from us. Students are selected at random by the federal government for verification of the income reported on their FAFSA application. When we receive your application we are notified of that request and at that time we will request you and your parents 2013 tax information from you. Depending on how quickly you return that information will also determine how long it takes to process your application.

Please call us anytime with questions but also be patient. It is not an overnight process.

Thank you.
